We have been pouring over these images all morning and lots of fun speculation is spinning around our heads with each reveal.

Keri Russell’s character has a name: Zorri Bliss. We can’t help to equate this character to Zam Wesell from Attack of the Clones.

Finn and Janna will ride creatures that appear to be a mash up of J’Quille and a horse. A J’Quill centaur if you will.

Appears the film will take partly on a planet of Pasaana which appears to not be home to any OT Era aliens.

The question is will Kylo and Rey have a rematch or a re-team?

Richard E. Grant’s character is given a name as well: Allegiant General Pryde. While we question his origin, will he replace Snoke is a Tarkin like manner? Or perhaps he’s just Hux’s father. :)

We also are given another look at our late Princess being scored by the the great John Williams who is back for his final Star Wars outing.

This is a great start to the hype machine that will no doubt begin to start up once Disney moves past their three upcoming blockbusters of Aladdin, Toy Story 4 and The Lion King in mid-July which will also time nicely with San Diego Comic-Con!

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on December 20th, 2019 and the merchandise release will be on Triple Force Friday on October 4th, 2019!
